10 On Tuesday

I loved Carole's 10 On Tuesday today.  It is 10 Good Deed I Did This Week.  Some of the deeds I did a week or so ago, but I'll count them because it's important to be kind, ya know?

1.  I rounded up all my purchases at the Farmers Market on Saturday and gave the extra to the farmers.  It's only small change but they were all so appreciative.

2.  I took in the recycle bins for hubby.  Not a big deal, but I wanted to save him the trip.

3.  I let a mom with 3 little ones cut in front of me at the Red Box machine.  I remember what those days were like.

4.  I fed 5 kids at least half the days last week.  You know I have ONE child right?  There is almost always another teenager around (I won't even count her boyfriend because after almost 4 years he is just part of the family) because only-children don't like being "alone".  It's all good though because we love having them around and I always wanted a lot of kids anyway.

5.  I kept my mouth shut.  You know the saying "when you having nothing good to say......".  Yeah, I was quiet.  Trust me - it was difficult.  And it was most charitable.

6.  I loaded up the toilet paper in the ladies room at work.  I also loaded up the paper towels. I hate going in there and seeing the holders empty.

7.  I bought my daughter a new mascara that she wanted.  Buying make-up is one of her "expenses".  I'll keep you clothed and fed, but now that you have a job, you can make yourself beautiful (but she doesn't need make-up for that anyway).

8.  I spun some yarn for a friend who needed it to finish a project she was making for her moms birthday.

9.  I gave a ton of zucchini and tomatoes to the neighbors.  We do this every year.  We give a lot to my parents as well.

10.  I let that cat sleep in my basket full of roving and I didn't even chase her out.

So what have you done to be kind lately?

I think your list is awesome. I love that you stocked up the supplies in the bathroom at work. And I hear you on the keeping your mouth shut bit. That can be so hard!

Keeping my mouth shut can be tough! You've inspired me with your awesome list.

this is a great list! I, too, remember the days with my arms full of kids and groceries. yay you for letting that woman cut in line (I let a few people cut in front of me while I was driving :-) and glad your kitty was the benefactor of (at least one!) your good deeds, too!!
